Finding out where sewage spills have taken place is as easy as picking up the phone. Just call the Wilmington regional office for the N.C. Division of Water Quality at (910) 796-7215 and ask for the surface water protection section, said Susan Massengale, spokeswoman for the agency.
The state also encourages you to call the same number if you see something you consider suspicious.
“We can’t be everywhere, and we are very happy to have an active citizenry,” Massengale said. “We’d be more than happy to have their input.”
